Welcome to the Hampton Pool Trust

Hampton Pool Trust is a small independent not for profit company and educational charity run by volunteers. Our vision is to maintain Hampton Pool as a safe, welcoming, enjoyable, sustainable and inspirational heated, open air swimming environment, all year round. Hampton Pool was saved from closure by members of the local community over 25 years ago. As a local social enterprise HPT exists to secure the future of the valuable local asset of Hampton Pool with its individual character and intimate charm for community use.

Hampton Pool Trust members are passionate about the facility and how it is run and aim to make Hampton Pool an inspiration for the popularity of sustainable, open air swimming, and good management of a local community facility.Read more...

The short answer

Running a charity can be complex and trustees need to be up to date on the operating environment for their charity. This may involve wider networking, taking up training opportunities, or reading the relevant newsletters or specialist trade papers.

In more detail

Collaboration: Trustees should find out what work is being done by similar organisations working in the same area. In some cases they can do this by joining an umbrella association co-ordinating work in a particular field.

Thanks to the money raised from Emily Morris's sponsored swim of the treacherous Cook Straits in New Zealand last year, Hampton Pool now has a mechanical chair hoist.This will allow access to the pool for customers with walking difficulties.

If you need to use the chair hoist please speak to a member of staff.

Thank you to everyone who sponsored Emily Morris, our special needs swimming instructor, who swam the Cook Strait in New Zealand to raise money to pay for the hoist.
